Chinese Style Garlic Shrimp & Veggies Pasta Recipe
This post was sponsored by Better Than Bouillon as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.
Chinese Shrimp with Garlic Sauce is my favorite weekly takeout treat. Jared and I usually pick some up after the gym from a local place and enjoy it for dinner together. I probably eat it at least 3 times per month and have always wished I could come close to making something comparable in flavor at home.
I have tried several times to make my own version of Chinese Shrimp with Garlic Sauce but it is always missing something. Sometimes it is too sweet, and other times too garlicky. But, I think I can finally admit I made something similar and for a way cheaper cost. I also nixed the white rice for some linguine which worked amazingly.
This Chinese Style Garlic Shrimp & Veggie Pasta was so quick to make and I didn’t even need to peel one clove of garlic. It’s a spin on the traditional Chinese Shrimp with Garlic Sauce recipe because it uses pasta noodles instead of white rice, and doesn’t use broccoli.
For this recipe, I used the Roasted Garlic Better Than Bouillon I received as part of this activation. I also received an abundance of other flavors that I cannot wait to delve into!
Have you ever heard of Better Than Bouillon products? Perhaps you have been seeing the commercial?
They are a jarred paste concentrate that is equivalent to a bouillon cube or broth. You can use these products to make your own stock, marinade meats, and veggies or add it directly to your pan while cooking as I did for this recipe.
Unlike traditional bouillon cubes that can take forever to dissolve, these pastes are ready when you are and are easy to measure out!
They are available in Premium, Vegetarian, Organic, and Reduced Sodium so there is a flavor for everyone!
Check out the MANY different flavors of Better Than Bouillon below:
Premium Flavors: Chicken, Beef, Vegetable, Roasted Garlic, Chili, Clam, Fish, Ham, Lobster, Mushroom and Turkey
Organic: Roasted Chicken, Mushroom, Turkey, Beef and Vegetable
Vegetarian: Vegetable, Roasted Garlic, Organic Vegetable, Vegetarian No Beef Base, Vegetarian No Chicken Base
Reduced Sodium: Reduced Sodium Beef, Reduced Sodium Chicken, Reduced Sodium Vegetable
As mentioned, I used the Roasted Garlic base in my recipe to bring out the bold, garlic flavor that Chinese Garlic Shrimp boasts. Paired with some other key ingredients like red pepper flakes, fresh ginger, and brown sugar.
This Chinese Garlic Shrimp recipe is made without soy sauce to reduce the saltiness thanks to the Better Than Bouillon.
While this dish traditionally includes broccoli, I opted for red pepper, mushroom, and onion with some fresh parsley as a garnish.
When working with the Better Than Bouillon it is important to note that a little goes a long way!
Just two full teaspoons of this product were enough to season one lb of pasta, one lb of shrimp, and the veggies which cook down and make their own broth.
Overall, I love my version of Chinese Shrimp with Garlic Sauce & Veggies Pasta and will be adding it to my monthly meal plans.
I love how fast and easy it was to prepare!
